Due to cultural, religious, or customs issues, it is difficult to deliver gift-filled shoeboxes in a number of nations around the world. Since 1993, we have delivered shoebox gifts to children in more than 150 countries including more than 50 hard-to-reach nations. Sending the Gospel to the Ends of the Earth Operation Christmas Child gift-filled shoeboxes go to some of the most difficult to reach places on earth.
And, through this series of remarkable sketches, Willemsen manages to reach for another kind of end, cathartic and healing—an end to love and lust, to illusions, to order and understanding.
Roger Willemsen is a German author, foreign correspondent and broadcaster. After a long interval, however, 'The Perseverance'--for that was her name--was spoken somewhere in the vicinity of the ends of the earth, cruising along as leisurely as ever, her sails all bepatched and be quilted with rope-yarns, her spars fished with old pipe staves, and her rigging knotted and spliced in every possible direction.
That includes areas that are hostile to the Gospel, places where whole people groups are yet unreached, and hundreds of remote Pacific islands. In remote jungles and dense urban centers, there are vast ethnic groups who may have never heard the Name of Jesus Christ. Your prayerfully packed boxes, including those sent throughprovide a creative way for believers in these locations to share the Gospel in a culturally sensitive way.
Some are literally that—geographical and topographical extremities like the Cape of Good Hope, the Himalaya, the volcanoes of Kamchatka, and the North Pole. And as they share their faith, entire From the ends of the earth and communities are transformed and new churches are started. After receiving a shoebox gift, many boys and girls also participate in our 12-lesson, follow-up discipleship program, The Greatest Journey, where they learn to follow Jesus and share Him with others.
The remotest parts of the globe. Occasionally, we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project.
All contributions designated for specific projects shall be applied to those projects, and we may assess up to 10 percent to be used for administering the gift. His work has been recognized through the Adolf Grimme Award, the Rinke Prize and the Julius Campe Award. Donations to Operation Christmas Child help cover shoebox collecting, processing, and shipping costs, as well as ministry partner training and Gospel materials.
Around 1,000 churches are planted each year in part because of Operation Christmas Child. We plan to share the love of Christ with over 500,000 children in the Pacific islands by 2023 as local churches lead shoebox outreach events. A brilliantly conceived and utterly original travelogue, The Ends of the Earth is as much an exploration of landscapes and geographies as it is of the psyche.
Did you know that every box that is packed through goes to a hard-to-access region? When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need. This volume is perfect for every kind of traveller.
Support Operation Christmas Child as we strive to send the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Your prayer partnership, shoebox packing, and financial donations make it possible for us to share the Gospel with more boys and girls around the world.
